Do you know how hard it was for GSP to keep Condit down? Any other WW grappler and Condit would have swept. Why do you think he was trying so hard to escape? Because being at the bottom is just NOT a great position to be at unless your bread and butter was Jitz. Those pity strikes from the bother did enough damage to bother the ground and pound but don't kid yourself, none of those strikes actually do "Real" dmg, just annoying pecking.
